Wrap up warm

Something I have been meaning to mention is what happens to me after a long distance run especially after my 12 hour run in April and my recent Ridgeway run.

Directly after these runs and especially when I have get home I find I have a complete inability to control my temperature properly and shiver uncontrollably. I assume it is because I have used up all my glycogen stores and have the inability to produce muscular heat. After Ridgeway I went to bed with a long-sleeved t-shirt, another t-shirt, long pyjama bottoms and a pair of thick socks under my duvet. It is then and only then do I warm up sufficiently to be able to sleep.

Do any of you get this problem, if so how do you remedy it, eat? Drink? What?
